The metal–oxide–semiconductor field-effect transistor is a device used for amplifying or switching electronic signals. In MOSFETs, a voltage on the oxide-insulated gate electrode can induce a conducting channel between the two other contacts called source and drain. The channel can be of n-typeor p-type, and is accordingly called an nMOSFET or a pMOSFET (also commonly nMOS, pMOS). It is by far the most common transistor in both digital and analog circuits, though the bipolar junction transistor was at one time much more common. More information on MOSFET can be found here.
2008 NCN@Purdue Summer School: Electronics from the Bottom Up
out of 5 stars
26 Aug 2008 | | Contributor(s):: Muhammad A. Alam, Supriyo Datta, Mark Lundstrom
Electronics from the Bottom Up is designed to promote the bottom-up perspective by beginning at the nanoscale, and working up to the micro and macroscale of devices and systems. For electronic devices, this means first understanding the smallest electronic device – a single molecule with two...

cylindrical geometry for mosfet in PADRE
how to define a cylindrical geometry for mosfet in padre?
How do I derive the 2D electron density used in nano MOSFET calculations?
Open | Responses: 1
In nanomos-2.5, the density of charge is obtained by multiplying the square of the wavefunction by a prefactor: with semiclassical method, that prefactor is given by
How to see the occupation of electrons with strain
How do I witness the variation of occupancies of electrons in the 6 conduction band minima’s with the applied strain. Can anyone suggest me the good simulation tool for the same.

A methodology for SPICE-compatible modeling of nanoMOSFETs
17 Nov 2010 | | Contributor(s):: Alba Graciela Avila, David Espejo
An original SPICE-compatible model for Intel's 45nm High-K MOSFET is presented. It takes into account some Quantum-Mechanical Effects that occur at small scale like Channel Length Modulation (CLM), Threshold Voltage variation and Velocity saturation, and is the first in his class that is not...
A Tutorial Introduction to Negative-Capacitor Landau Transistors: Perspectives on the Road Ahead
04 Dec 2015 | | Contributor(s):: Muhammad A. Alam
In this talk, I use a simple graphical approach to demystify the device and explain why the experimental results are easy to misinterpret. Since the NC-FET is just a special case of a much broader class of phase-change devices and systems (e.g., transistors, memories, MEMS, logic-in-memory...
